Question about 1984 Chevrolet Camaro

Little to zero fuel pressure in fuel line. 95 Chevy Lumina 3.1. I can hear the fuel pump activate when I turn the key switch to the "start" position, but when I try to start the engine it won't turn over....Not smelling any gas either after a few attempts.

Restriction in fuel line is possible but not likely. There are two filters to prevent that. The orginal fuel filter, and a screen on the bottom of the fuel pump. Anyways, the problem you are describing sounds like a busted hose on the fuel pump. You could replace the whole fuel pump. Or if it's the kind I'm thinking of, there is a hose on a fuel pump that dose occasionaly brake. If that hose is broken, replacing just that hose should solve your problem.

Hi,sounds like a bad fuel pump.I would check for restrictions in the fuel supply line.There is a very remote chance that your pressure regulator could be malfunctioning....Good Luck!!!

What is the average price for a fuel pump. I think mine just died

Phone some parts suppliers for your vehicle and they will give you a quote.
1. Take the gas cap off and get someone to switch the ignition on while you listen for the pump operation.. If operable the pump will run for about 3 seconds and then stop.

2, Check the fuse for the pump is sound and not blown.

3. Check the Relay for the pump. Locate the relay in your fuse and relay box and have someone switch the ignition on and off a few times. You should hear the relay clicking. If not it is faulty and needs to be replaced if you want power to the pump.

4. You need to have a mechanic check for fuel pressure with a pressure gauge. When fitted you switch the ignition on and off a few times. If the pump has failed and is getting power to it then you will get zero fuel pressure.

As they get older some pumps get a little louder. Does the pump shut off if you turn the key on engine off ? It should hum for 2 seconds then go quiet.

1997 chevy k1500 won,t start cold starting fluid will start truck

I would check the fuel pump relay first. You should have some fuel pressure in the lines when you turn the key on. The relay is powered for 3 seconds to boost pressure until the engine starts.
The relay may not be working or the check valve in the pump may be letting fuel back into the tank which would cause the pressure to drop to zero when the engine is off. You should have at least 15psi with a TBI system and 35psi with MFI.

I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

Had friend put OBD diagnostics to it and error code indicated fuel pump ????? No code indicates replacing any part . Indicates testing ! pressure and flow testing , voltage drop testing the electrical circuit etc... There is a check valve in the fuel pump assembly that is suppose to keep pressure in the fuel lines an fuel rail . When the check valve goes bad allows fuel to drain back into the tank. Try turn the key on an off a few times to build up pressure . The PCM energizes the fuel pump relay for two seconds at key on .

It sounds like the fuel pump is not working. Perhaps the install was not completed correctly. Things to check, fuel pump relay, wiring, voltage to the pump.
The priming happens as soon as you put the key in and turn it to "acc" (you may hear a humming sound). Then once you turn it to "start" the injectors and spark plugs start firing.
Another possibility is that the fuel filter was installed backwards.

The fuel pump may be running but it may not be providing enough fuel pressure. Have the fuel pressure checked at the fuel rail and if it is not to specification, replace the fuel pump.

On my 1995 Chevy Lumina I replaced the battery, starter, fuel line and & filter but it still won't crank up, what could be the issue?

it could be the pump. have someone turn the key but not start and listen by the tank for a short 1 to 2 second hum. If you hear nothing then your pump is bad and you will need to remove the gas tank.
